Diebold announces self-service vault solutions

 Permanent link
NORTH CANTON, Ohio (7/24/09)--ATM manufacturer Diebold Inc. announced it has introduced the Electronic Vault Attendant (EVA) Elite, which offers a dual-controlled vault and safe deposit box access for financial institutions. EVA Elite eliminates the necessity of a vault attendant. EVA’s dual controls include physical access control to grant entry to the vault’s daygate, and the use of an electronic and physical key to enable safe deposit box owners to access only their assigned boxes, Diebold said. EVA can be customized, depending on the level of security desired by financial institutions. Reader devices, including fingerprinting, hand geometry, card swiping and signature capture can be combined with the daygate. Randolph Brooks FCU has deployed the solution at its Bulverde, Texas, branch and plans to implement the system at its 31 other branches. “The solution has greatly freed up employee time,” said Pat Tolle, Randolph Brooks vice president of technical services. Diebold is a CUNA Strategic Service provider based in North Canton, Ohio.

NEW YORK (7/24/09)--The National Federation of Community Development Credit Unions is promoting Credit Union Retired Executives (CURE)--a virtual network of retired credit union executives who volunteer their time and expertise to provide free, confidential advice to credit union professionals--to community development credit unions (CDCUs).

“CDCU managers can benefit from specialized advice, which has typically been available at a cost that puts that knowledge out of reach for most CDCUs,” said Pablo DeFilippi, federation director of membership services. “All credit union professionals will benefit from the collective knowledge and expertise of CURE’s network, and we are pleased to encourage our member credit unions to take advantage of this service.” CURE is more important than ever as a resource to CDCUs, according to federation President/CEO Cliff Rosenthal. “This showcases the fundamental principles of cooperation inherent in our credit union system, and we are confident that this initiative will make the expertise and sophistication of ‘mainstream’ credit unions much more accessible to CDCUs,” Rosenthal added. CURE is a resource offered by Credit Union Info Inc., which was founded to share the experience of retired credit union executives with credit union professionals. For more information, use the link.
